For this programme, only three places were chosen across Maharashtra, One of these places is the study of tribal villages in the Kalwan project office, an integrated tribal development project.

Every year Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) conducts the toughest exam — civil services. This exam is popularly known among all common citizens as the IAS Exam. On average, 9 lakh to 10 lakh candidates apply every year for this exam.

Out of these lakhs of candidates, only 150-200 crack IAS and IPS exams annually. After selection, they are given training at Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Training, Mussoorie, Uttarakhand. As part of this training programme, they have to undergo a week-long “village visit programme” to gain exposure to village-level lifestyle, issues faced by villagers and implementation of rural development schemes. This year, officers selected from the 2023 Batch of the exam were on the village visit programme.

Before this, the visit programme was generally being conducted in villages near Mussoorie in the states of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and nearby States.
